Four teenage girls are killed and two left in a critical condition after pandemonium breaks out at an a1 appearance in Indonesia...

Four teenage girls have been killed and two left in a critical condition after a stampede to see A1 in the INDONESIAN capital JAKARTA earlier today (March 18).

The tragedy happened after 1,500 fans descended on a record store in the city's Taman Anggrek shopping centre to see the British group.

According to, panic broke out when fans tried to escape the crush by rushing to the mall's exits. The four dead girls were killed when they fell in the ensuing chaos.

The group, who had a Number One hit with their cover of A-ha's 'Take On Me', are currently on a tour of Asia where they have a huge following.

Earlier in the tour, the band had to cancel another appearance at a record store in the Philippines, after a throng of 20,000 turned up, rather than the 1,000 expected.

The band have yet to issue a statement. The deaths of the girls, who have not yet been named, follows last year's tragedy at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark, when eight music fans were killed after a crowd surge during a headlining appearance by Pearl Jam.
